MACE 2021: UNPUB Games

MACE 2021 will once again host several brilliant game designers and publishers attending for the sole purpose of demoing and play testing their unpublished games.  We feel very privileged and honored that these fine designers would use MACE as a testing ground for their ideas.  

Here are a list of games currently on the schedule that are marked with the UNPUB tag, but we will have more.

UNPUB games on the schedule include


Mountaineer Games

Zombie Frenzy

An unpublished game with that as a working title. Demoing it to the owner of Twilight Creations on 9/10.  If she picks it up, I want to start building some interest in it for a likely upcoming kickstarter

Elementary

An unpublished game that I want to start building some interest.  Will be a pseudo-educational game, that I plan to pitch to Genius Games, maybe as early as 10/1 (depends how much time Zombie Frenzy takes!)

Guardians of Strongholme

An unpublished game set in a D&D 5E universe, where players defend the town of Strongholme from a Goblin Invasion.  Planning to pitch to Mr. B as soon as the Table Top Simulator assets are finished


Twice Alive Games

Check OGRe often for updates.  More UNPUB games are expected to be added.  You must be register for MACE 2021 to participate.

The zombie apocalypse is upon us! The infection is spreading, and you must stop it… unless, that is, your cynicism, darkness, denial, or overwhelming hunger for fresh brains has overshadowed your will to save humanity.

Who can you trust in this game of deception and shifting allegiances? Even those who are silent may be lying to your face. You must summon all your intelligence and intuition to identify friend from foe and turn your enemies against each other to survive. You must fight for survival as you are plunged into the war between Zombies, Survivors, and Maniacs, taking on the roles of up to 14 unique characters with special abilities and innumerable combinations. Only your cunning and quick thinking can lead you to victory.

You’ve only got to make it through the night—do you have the brains to get the job done?

MACE 2021 Featured RPG: Time Warriors

JustUs Productions is proud to announce Fourth Dimension Studios LLC will be returning to MACE this year with a full weekend of demos of their Time Warriors d6 RPG as well as a Time Warriors: Tide of War event.

About Time Warriors d6

Hawkins began the process of hand-picking a small squad. As he considered different individuals, he came to the realization that the war was now being fought on two fronts, a fact he knew from many examples throughout history, to be disastrous. It was at this point that Hawkins made several hard decisions.

First, he would not fight a war on two fronts; rather he would make the VenRacken forces fight two separate wars. This meant he had to have two separate military forces: in essence, two armies.

Secondly, he commissioned a new rank of Grand Marshall and awarded the rank to a proven leader and soldier named Gregory Hewitt. Grand Marshall Hewitt would be the commanding officer of the second military force completely comprised of soldiers from earth’s past. These time traveling soldiers would be known as Time Warriors. The Time Warriors would battle the VenRackens throughout time, while the resistance would continue to fight against the empire in the present time period.

Hawkins gave Grand Marshall Hewitt four standing orders:

  1. Protect earth’s history.
  2. Protect civilian lives.
  3. Recruit anyone, despite color, sex, allegiances and religion found to be eligible within historical record.
  4. Kill all enemy forces.

Several years have passed since that day…Hewitt is dead…Setzer, a former squad leader is now Grand Marshall. The war rages on, presently and throughout history. Despite the added numbers, and the spike in technology, the VenRackens are still a far more powerful foe. To complicate matters, other alien races have arrived: the Keltarians, the Felcrum, and the Broozak just to name a few.

The life of a Time Warrior is bloody, horrifying, and constant. The level of stress is beyond one’s imagination. He or she witness the blood spray of battle amidst the back drop of Ancient Egypt, Babylon, Greece or even Rome. The battle continues to rage on into Nazi Germany, 9/11 and World War III. A war that rages on unknown to those who live in the past, explaining what glimpses they catch as phenomenon or conspiracy.

The Time Warrior, in his heart, is a lone warrior with the knowledge that death might only be seconds away.You have been selected to be a Time Warrior, but consider your choice carefully…

You may not grow to be who or what you imagined as a child, but you do live a privileged life. You will be fighting for mankind’s right to exist, our right to possess our own planet, for the future that your lineage will inherit. You will be trained; you will evolve into a highly dangerous and efficient warrior beyond anything you know from your own time period. You will assist in the defeat of VenRath, and those who follow him.

Make your decision wisely, but know this: we came to you because the Empire has begun targeting Time Warriors before they were recruited. We intercepted the kill orders for you. If you choose to remain, we will do our best to protect you. But there will come a time when you will be on your own. Time is of the essence. What is your decision?

Time Warriors – Time of War

As described by the creator and writer – Matthew Croshaw

In a nut shell, four tables [ of Time Warriors in one room] each with a GM, allowing us to run different aspects of the same battle simultaneously. It also allows us to create real time variables/situations the players have to deal with.

For example: One team has the objective of taking the bridge, in doing so they accidentally knock artificial gravity out for the entire ship, any other teams on the ship suddenly without any notice or reason why no longer have artificial gravity and must adapt.

Another example would be a team mate crashes near another team. Now the objectives have changed as the team must save the pilot. The PC playing the pilot, now must change tables to the team that has rescued him/her.
